  • My FZ1000 has been on order now for 10 days. Supposedly I am first on the list. I have called every major distribution location, Adorama, B&H, Midwest, Henry's, etc. and no one has any in stock. ...
  • A further set of questions. What specific card are you using, how fast is it rated and have you tried other cards/card speeds at 4K.
  • >"The pulled stills may show more motion blur than the couple might accept. You could shoot the video using a faster shutter speed [essentially 30fps burst mode] to improve the stills, but then ...
  • 4K has been out there for quite a while and Perhaps someone has experience with editing video for stills. It sounds like a good idea but it might be an endless search for the one frame that is not ...
  • I posted this in the proper forum and only received a waring to watch out that 128 cards might not work in the cam. Nothing about the possible new way to shoot..... >I don't have mine yet ...
  • Thank you for the heads up on card size. Is there any comment about the proposed mode of operating?
  • I don't have mine yet. On order, but I plan to shoot outdoor wedding ceremonies in 4K, a 120GB card should be enough. I'll pull the stills from the 4K feed and then convert the 4K into 1080P for ...

    Hi bob, i saw one of your posts so I posted here.  Don't worry about the newbies anyone from the old Fuju days knows who I am.  The only real point is that the light "consumer" targeted cameras ...
  • Created discussions A note to a few old timers
    There are a few of you still around who post and still more who might just drop in from time to time. I have recently changed cameras and my back is enjoying the change. Old set up was Fujifilm-S5 ...
  • A logical way to assess what to review would be based on total units sold to date and modified by projected sales of those units.  By that logic, Pentax has been given a terribly unfair and ...
  • >Has anyone used a 645D or come from using a high end DSLR to the 645D? I bought the 645D when it first came out and was able to get almost all the lenses from the film 645 on ebay within a 4 month ...
  • The listing is gone. I had one and it was stolen from my luggage while I was checking in to a hotel. How much were they asking for it?
  • It will be interesting to compare 40MP CCD to 50MP CMOS.  The CCD should have lower noise, higher ISO capability but in good light at baseline ISO I'm guessing that the 40MP CCD will hold its own ...
  • Replied in For Grumpy
    Go to Ebay and, for example, search on the 35mm lens for the 645 which was the most difficult to get lens in the system. When I bought mine there were 3 available and all were manual focus. Today ...
  • Replied in For Grumpy
    Go to Ebay, type in the lens you are interested in and look at what is available. As I tried to say, my most used lenses, the 35, 75, 120 macro and 200 were all purchased at very good prices. They ...

    >" limitations as of lenses available for it." >"Pentax would come out with a new set of lenses for the 645 DF from WA to longish tele and some specialty lenses, macro, maybe TS, etc......." Lets ...
  • Indeed, the 645D is in a league of its own. And your observations mirror my observations articulated in the opening and also in things I did not state but agree with. Some more data on the subject ...
  • Created discussions Pentax 645D vs Nikon D800E
    I purchased the 645D when it first came out and have been very happy with its output ever since. A year and a half later I bought the Nikon D800E and of course I tested both, in good light on a ...

    Nicely done. If I could start from scratch on FX I would get the D610 after someone runs Thom's test on it..... For almost all applications the D800E is overkill. The D7100 is a very nice camera by ...
  • What else do you want that the D800 or D800E doesn't already deliver. I have made 3'x4' photos from my D800E with 25 people in the photo and you can walk up to the photo and inspect the thread of ...
